Experience Jaisalmer, Rajasthan: The living Fort City

I could see the Fort rising as I was getting closer to the city of Jaisalmer. Because I had already researched enough for the trip, I was high on the expectation of what the city would give me. The landscape from my car window had changed from the Indian weed, Gando Bawar, haphazardly growing everywhere to a landscape with less dense vegetation of some pointy grass or shrubs scattered, consuming half the horizon. We were close to the Thar Desert.

4 Reasons You Have to Visit Jaisalmer on Your Trip to India

From Delhi’s chaotic traffic jungle to the beautiful tranquility of the Taj Mahal, from admiring the abundance of monkeys on the green hillsides of Mount Abu to the efficient women beating down their laundry on the stairs leading down to Lake Pichola in Udaipur, there is one place in particular I will recommend to all travelers going to India: the city of Jaisalmer.

Colors, Music and Happiness

Navratri means “nine nights” it is one of the most wonderful festivals celebrated all over India and Nepal. This festival happen in the beginning of October but the exactly date is determinate according with the Lunar Calendar. You can choose any of the magicals cities of Rajasthan as Jaipur (The Pink city), Udaipur (City of Lakes), Jodhpur (the Blue city) or Jaisalmer (the city inside a forte), these options are the traditional and organized for tourist, wich are really nice and colorful but if you are more like me and want to go for a really native experience I‘m going to suggest to go for any city in Gujarat. In my case a choose Vadodara or in English Baroda.  Baroda is located 6 hours way by train from Mumbai and 2 from Ahmadabad, the largest city of the state.  If you want to know a nice and traditional India, you should come and visit it. Gujarat is the home of Gandhi and who preached unity between all religions and became a worldwide figure for peaceful struggle against tyranny. Because of that, Gujarat is a dry state. Dry state? How come can it be?  Well is one of the few states in India, where Indians are not allow to drink and foreigner have to ask for a permission to buy in some hotels 5 beers per week or 2 bottles of any alcohol they sell (mostly Vodka, Whisky, Indian Wine called “Sula” and Rum)..They actually have a register of how much alcohol you buy. Also most all the people living there is vegetarian but you can find some restaurants than offer some chicken and lamb dishes but you will never find beef.
